1. 11

    तत्त्वतो न नवात्मासौ शब्दराशिर्न भैरवः । न चासौ त्रिशिरा देवो न च शक्तित्रयात्मकः ॥ ११ ॥

    In reality (the essence) of Bhairava is not the nine forms, nor the garland of letters, nor the three flows and not even the three powers of shakti.

  2. 12

    नादबिन्दुमयो वापि न चन्द्रार्धनिरोधिकाः । न चक्रक्रमसम्भिन्नो न च शक्तिस्वरूपकः ॥ १२ ॥

    His (Bhairava's) form (cannot be perceived) in nada and bindu nor even in the obstructed half moon, nor in the piercing of successive chakras, nor docs shakti, or energy, constitute his essence.

  3. 13

    अप्रबुद्धमतीनाम् हि एता बालविभीषिकाः । मातृमोदकवत्सर्वं प्रवृत्त्यर्थमुदाहृतम् ॥ १३ ॥

    These things have been told (about the form of Bhairava), like the tales used to frighten children, to induce people of immature intellect to follow the spiritual path, just as the mother entices her child with sweets.

  4. 14

    दिक्वालकलनोन्मुक्ता देशोद्देशाविशेषिणी । व्यपदेष्टुमशक्यासावकथ्या परमार्थतः ॥ १४ ॥

    Ultimately (that state of bhairava) cannot be measured in terms of time, space or direction, nor can it be indicated by any attribute or designation.

  5. 15

    अन्तः स्वानुभवानन्दा विकल्पोन्मुक्तगोचरा । यावस्था भरिताकारा भैरवी भैरवात्मनः ॥ १५ ॥

    One can have this inner experience for1 oneself when the mind is free from modifications or thought patterns. The atman of bhairava, which is known as bhairavi, is then experienced as the bliss of one’s own inner awareness, a state whose form is fullness, free from all contradictions (which is the abode of the entire universe).
